Who we are
Our journey as a Group began over 100 years ago, when Swedish farmers came together to create new ways of working with grain. Ever since, Lantmännen has been all about developing a proﬁtable and sustainable business from grain – a very small product, yet with such huge potential.
Today, we are an international and growing Group with operations in over 20 countries, across the entire value chain – from ﬁeld to fork. With a growing world population, increasing climate change and more conscious consumers – demand for more innovative and responsible grain solutions is greater than ever. This is why we surround ourselves with over 10,500 Lantmännen driven people. People who can challenge us to stay at the forefront and reimagine the world of grain.
Lantmännen’s values - Openness, Drive and Holistic View - guide us in our everyday work. By having an open climate based on trust, transparency and communication, taking initiatives and acting in proactive ways, as well as seeing everything as part of a greater whole, we can continue to be an attractive, profitable and successful company.
We have to be open to changes in the market and changes in the behaviour of our customers, We also have to be flexible and be prepared to adapt to these changes quickly. Here at Lantmännen we work to create an open climate that values trust, transparency and communication. We are happy to receive feedback and understand that this helps us develop as individuals.
We take a sustainable and long-term approach and see our operations, our own unit and ourselves individually as part of a greater whole. We all take responsibility to contribute to the business as a whole - from field to fork - and we continually look for new ways to collaborate with our colleagues and improve our relationships with them. We look at Lantmännen as one company.
Drive is about taking the initiative, acting in a proactive way and taking personal responsibility for our results. We get personallyinvolved and make decisions that will help us to move forward and find new and better solutions. This also means that it is fine to make mistakes from time to time as it will help us learn for the next time. We can create successful teams by supporting and helping each other in the challenges we face.
We have expertise throughout the entire value chain – from the very sprout in the field to the food on our tables and beyond. Here are a couple of examples of what happens when you mix different areas of expertise in an innovation driven environment.
